"The Essential Art of Living"

How do we achieve the flow experience? Can this be induced?

Which is the better path? Living gracefully with peaceful reflection and serenity, or full-out "type A" competitive, goal striving endurance?

It seems the "golden mean," down the center, is the best course for flow which favors active challenge. Choose a course and invest fully in it (commit).

Accepting personal responsibility and overcoming obstacles is the mode of operation. Goals and choice provide the catalyst and delivery system.

Then "luck" favors a prepared mind and hopefully you engage fully and experience flow...total absorption.

Directing consciousness, not the accumulation of "things" or fulfilling societal prescriptions leads to flow.

Breathe!    Live-Love-Laugh!
